This project is Stage 3 of the on-ground implementation of the Pumicestone Passage Sub-catchment Healthy Country Program, an initiative funded by the Queensland Government Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. It will secure a serious erosion point at the headwaters of Bluegum Creek, where large sediment plumes were delivered in the heavy rain events of 2011 and 2013, and re-establish the riparian vegetation and wetland zone of Bluegum Creek prior to entering the Glasshouse Mountains National Park Bluegum section. The works that this project application will cover will complement the earthworks and rock placement achieved by the landholder. SEQ Catchments’ Soil Conservation Officer Peter Pearce has approved the works. As well as weed control and re-vegetation, the project will install matting for erosion control.

The project will:
  • carry out 0.035ha weed control
  • plant 0.035ha with native riparian species along 20m.


This project will:
  • improve water quality in Bells Creek and Pumicestone Passage wetland by reducing sediment and nutrient run-off through riparian re-vegetation.
